Diets mean restrictions and nobody is a fan of restrictions. Turns out, on the keto diet you can have your cake and eat it too. This recipe uses coconut flour and replaces sugar with a low carb sweetener, such as Stevia or Xylitol. Our keto chocolate mug cake recipe is still packed with chocolatey goodness and not the cardboard aftertaste of many prepackaged health foods.

1½ Tablespoons coconut flour
½ teaspoon baking powder
1¾ Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
2 Tablespoons unsalted butter
1½ Tablespoons low carb sweetener of choice
2 Tablespoons heavy cream or half & half
¼ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
¼ teaspoon salt
Optional: Fresh sliced strawberries for serving
